A version of Paradise's popular Q-Flex™ satellite modem, the Q-FlexV
replaces the award-winning Vision series and is ideal for Ultra HDTV,
DTH, DSNG, ISP backhaul, fiber restoration and video contribution and
distribution services. It supports IP and ASI interfaces and can
multiplex the two together, and also supports both the DVB-S2X and the
legacy DVB-S/DSNG standards. Teledyne Paradise Datacom (News - Alert) is exhibiting
advancements in modem technology, including the Q-FlexV, at Stand

provides 100% link availability.

modem that does what you want, now and in the future because updates are
achieved by convenient software upgrades via Ethernet or memory stick.
This flexible hardware platform makes it ideal for handling high-rate
video and IP traffic. With Dual IF/L-band operation, Q-FlexV delivers
data rates up to 155Mbps, has LinkGuard™ signal-under-carrier
interference detection and constellation monitor, and delivers optimized
